Super Mario Bros. (NES) - 0:05:10 - Scott Kessler


Published 2004


Speed run of Super Mario Bros. done on April 23 2004. Was the fastest available video until October 15 2004.

Author's comments:
I've replaced my old 5:14 video with my newest 5:13! This is probably the last time I'll improve my record. The video quality on this one is pretty good since it was captured from the original video tape of my run. The only thing I'm not happy with in this run is my 4-2 performance. It was not bad, but I've done better. The rest went perfectly, and I even set a new PR in 8-4 with 309 time units remaining. Can we say clutch? Anyway, a lot of people have asked me for a SMB video so I hope people enjoy it!

Subject: THAT WAS REAL!!!!
hello guys, i am ruthie from the Philippines. i am 25 years old and i started playing SMB when i was only 9 years old. actually, my whole family was an SMB game addict! my youngest brother (now turning 18) was even named Luigi!
when my mom was still alive (and pregnant to my youngest brother), she will stay all night just to finish that game everyday. until she was used to it and can get the princess in just 15mins (using those pipes also). and the trick was: SPEED RUNNING! and after mario 1, we transfer our addiction into mario 3 game, and my aunt in Japan sent us a "secret code" book on how to get the princess in no time! we used the "flutes" to get to the shortcut pipes and the hundred lives (in brick/coin castle) just beat kuppa in less than 15 mins! i don't have a video to show u, but once u know the secrets of mario 1 and 3---getting the princess is just a blink of an eye!

Actually it is possible. If you know the tricks of the trade that is. Just because it looks like it doesn't mean it can't be done. I've done it. By accident with one man remaining. Anyways good run.

i beat this video by 4 seconds. this is only 1 second away from perfect without glitches and cheats, and my video IS real. this took me nearly a year and a half to play the game this well. scott's run is good, but check out this.

Subject: Will people stop being disrespectful
I would like to say this is a fabulous run without using cheats and pushing the game to its glitches limits. I can say the latter is true but at the end, with little Mario you cannot jump through that thing without dying. Nevertheless, this is a good run and I wish people would stop giving it a 1 just because they are feeling nasty. A good run, there may be a little cheating BUT I don't have any right to say that as I am not an expert. Great run!

Subject: It can be done
I have beat the game in less than 5 mins without cheats so i know it can be done. Anyone who doubts it is just mad that they can't do it. Congrats to you for the incredible time

Subject: Everything was possible, but...
Everything this guy did was possible without cheats (jumping THROUGH the TOP HALF of a Pirahna plant for example). However, jumping right THROUGH Bowser's hammers at the end isn't possible without dying when you're small Mario. Good movie either way.

Although this run has been superseded it is still excellent, and I'm giving it a 5 to make up for the BS here

The enemies can't kill.
Reviewer: vsnce - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - June 28, 2005
Subject: Not cheating
The person above me states that it is impossible to jump over the Pirahna plants. This person obviously has not played Mario much before because it is perfectly possible to jump over them as the video shows. It's also possible to jump right through the arc of Bowser's hammers in the castle. Great video.

Subject: Definitly 100% sure it isnt a fake
I am able to do the same speed or better almost exactly the sma movements until the last four levels, in which I am much slower, if I had that much time I'd tape it too... pretty good
Reviewer: darkone - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - January 3, 2005
Subject: impressive video ;)
I wonder is it possible to play same game as fast on the snes as well? In super mario allstars game collections. Quess not. Or?

Subject: Couldn't view
It uses Divx 5 which is has all sorts of problems (adware, restrictive EULA). Won't play with Divx 3/4 CODEC or OpenDivx.

Subject: it's no fake
I doubt it's fake. 1) it isn't emu'ed 2) it's from a VHS tape. 3) It's just a good run. Most old school gamers can get threw this game in 7 minutes.. Even the bad ones.

Subject: Cheater
The guy cheats..
He cant die..
Notices how he magicly can jump trough the "pipe planets enemys" without dieing

(Ed note: Play the game yourself, it doesn't have perfect collision detection!)

I still think he cheat. As he also can jump trough the hammers browser trough at the end (play it in slow motion)
